2 offshore birds southern California

Recommended Posts

First, I am so bummed I forgot my good camera on yesterday's fishing trip.  I should have had 5 or 6 new species, but couldn't ID.  So all I have these iPhone shots.  When I tried to crop it was too tiled so I left as is since when I zoom I can see enough to attempt an ID.  Here are my identifications,  As always corrections, confirmations, and education always greatly appreciated. 

Shorebird?  Petrel?

Not a great show.  Was sitting on a Kelp Paddy 45 miles off the coast and 35 miles south of Catalina Island.



Black-vented Shearwater 

There were several species of Shearwaters, terns, gulls, etc. on a large school of bait fish.  About 4 or 5 miles off the coast of Newport.  These are the only shots I got of this species.  



Sorry for the poor shots.  I will not forget the good camera next time (especially since fishing was poor)
